"If I could give 6/5 stars, I would. Truly cannot say enough about Johanna and her team. From the very first phone call that I had with Johanna, I could tell she cared and was excited to get to know me and my now husband. I quickly wanted to get the contract locked in because of this.

After this step, Johanna immediately jumped in to walk us through organization and steps needed prior to the big day. Every meeting we had with her felt like hanging out with a friend, in the best way. Johanna often stayed way past the time she allotted for us just laughing and getting to know us on a personal level. I’m not sure she knows how much we truly valued the time she spent with us.

She has so much experience and knowledge about the wedding industry as well as event management. Her unique background in managing construction makes her above the rest. Whether it’s guiding you through a rain plan, pointing you to a reliable vendor for last minute hiccups, or even offering fun late night snack/ favor ideas – Johanna has you covered. There was never a time that she didn’t respond to my emails, texts, calls instantly.

A tropical storm spun up the week of our wedding and it ultimately dumped 4 inches of rain on our entire outdoor wedding. This didn’t seem to phase Johanna in the slightest. Her and her team put on their rain boots, zipped up their jackets, and proceeded to decorate our entire tent, manage all of the vendors, and made the day feel as if the sun was shining & everything was going as originally planned. I never felt stressed about the event itself because I knew JLM had it all covered.

We love Johanna and words truly cannot express our absolute gratitude for her and her team. Without a doubt will highly recommend her for our entire lives moving forward."

"If you're planning a wedding stop what you're doing and go hire Johanna and her team. I am not exaggerating when I say that hiring Johanna as our day-of-coordinator was the single best decision my husband and I made in our wedding planning process. I can be very Type A (and have built a career in project management) so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a coordinator who could 1) handle my personality (admittedly I can be a lot) and 2) could be organized enough that I could truly turn my brain off for my wedding ceremony and just enjoy the day. Johanna absolutely blew us away. Not only is she one of the most organized people I've ever met, she's an incredibly kind and genuine human, and made us feel like we had a true teammate in this crazy wedding planning process. When people tell you that no matter how much you prepare your wedding will never go exactly according to plan, they mean it. The MORNING of my wedding I received an email from my photobooth vendor that their equipment was broken and that they could no longer fulfill our contract. Johanna helped us secure a replacement vendor in a matter of hours and took care of the logistics so my husband and I could be fully present on our wedding day. We also experienced a crazy rain storm that disrupted a key period of our timeline and had to postpone our outdoor ceremony, but Johanna was there every step of the way taking caring of the last minute change of plans, advocating for us, and making sure the vision we had for our ceremony and reception was executed beautifully in the end. I genuinely cannot say enough kind things about Johanna. If you want a knowledgeable professional who also feels like a friend you've known for years to help plan or coordinate your wedding or event, hire JLM Design & Events. You will not regret it. :) Sincerely, a happy bride."

"Johanna and her team leave no stone unturned when it comes to your big day. She guided us through one of the most stressful days in a person's life and made it all seem so easy. We had no worries in the world. She ensured that everything ran smoothly with a smile the whole time. I would not hesitate or wait to reach out to the JLM team, you won't regret it. Thanks again Johanna for being there for us every step of the way!!!!"

"JLM Design & Events was great to work with! I wouldn't have changed a thing. Johanna kept me on track leading up to my wedding day and remaining flexible through the whole process. She was readily available to answer any questions or concerns I had when planning my wedding and get great advice. Her day of coordination was great and really took the stress off of my and my groom. I would highly recommend JLM Design & Events!"

Holly J. 


"Johanna was fantastic! From the first meeting we had together, my wife and I had no doubt that our wedding would not skip a beat when we took a backseat on the wedding day. Johanna has wonderful communication. She answered any and all questions we had in a matter of hours. She had planning documents prepared quickly and with great detail at the end of every meeting. Johanna always had a positive attitude and was incredibly easy to work with. I could not recommend a better planner from a better event team!"

Ryan P.


"Johanna was very professional and more than helpful during our ceremony. Thanks to her, our special day could not have been any smoother. I would recommend her to anyone wanting their special day to be free of stress and full of joy!"

Tina M. 


"Johanna was fantastic as our wedding coordinator! If we could do it all over again, the only thing we would change is hiring her to help us sooner. She is very kind, patient, thoughtful, and understanding regarding the entire wedding planning process. On the actual wedding day, we unfortunately had lots of rain before our outdoor ceremony and she sprung into action to make sure we could execute a backup plan as well as help keep our ceremony items as dry as possible. We felt very confident in Johanna and her team to run everything as smoothly as possible and that’s exactly what happened despite our rain delay and schedule shifts!"

Keanna G.


"Johanna and her team could not have been any better. Johanna always made herself available for any last minute questions or concerns we had. The planning process was way less stressful than it could have been with Johanna’s help. I can not recommend JLM Design & Events enough. Everything about this entire experience was made better with her team, we are forever grateful for how our wedding day turned out with the help of Johanna."

Linden F.


"Where do I begin? Johanna is simple the best and made my wedding dreams come true. She was there EVERY step of the way, gave me recommendations, KEPT ME ORGANIZED, and helped me stay sane. I can’t express how amazing she is, literally better than wedding insurance. She is prepared in every way possible and makes you feel good about the whole process. I can’t even count how many times my mom mentioned that she was the best investment out of everything!! I was honestly ready to throw her in a bridesmaids gown by the end of it. She is truly JLo from “The Wedding Planner” in real life!"

Brittany M.


"Johanna was so incredible during the entire year and a half of our wedding planning process. She was so flexible and worked so well off of my level of involvement in planning (which was a lot). She showed concern over issues that we were worried about and reassured us based on her experience that immediately put our minds at ease. She was so organized and on top of things that we would never have thought of and paid attention to every little detail. We never felt like we were burdening her with questions especially as wedding day started to approach which is so crucial to managing stress levels. We always felt like we were her number 1 priority. I would highly recommended Johanna to any couple who wants a true wedding expert on their team to make their lives less stressful and more enjoyable during such a unique and special time!"

Kelsey G.


"My wife and I have nothing but great things to say. Johanna was so professional and helpful throughout the entire process of planning our wedding. She answered all of our questions promptly and of course asked us questions we hadn’t even thought of yet! With her experience, she had suggestions any time we were unsure and when too many people were sharing their opinions, she always reassured us that it was our day and we should choose what we wanted.
Day of- she was always around and was an absolute boss at handling two brides! She’ll politely command a room full of chatty people and make everyone fall in line so you don’t have to and she is always just a holler away if you need anything. Not only did she help every step of the way, but was also an overall joy to have around and laughed with us the whole time. We could not recommend JLM enough!! Johanna made our experience a dream!"

Madison G.


"Johanna went above and beyond to help us out with our big day. Our only regret was not using one of Johanna's larger packages. We used the finishing touch package, but from the second we started working with Johanna, our wedding planning experience changed drastically for the better. By the time we connected with her, we had already booked most venders, but looking back, I wish we had connected earlier. Johanna is incredibly knowledgeable in the wedding planning industry, and we really would have benefited from her help earlier on in the planning process. She thought of every detail and provided great advise. Johanna is reliable, flexible, knowledgeable and good company. We are so happy with how our day went and cannot thank Johanna enough for her help."

"If you need a planner, book Johanna as soon as you can. She and her team are absolutely amazing. She’s so organized (my DJ said she had the most thorough timeline he’d ever seen). She was super responsive. I booked her for the “Finishing Touches” coordinator which is month of coordination, and she went over and beyond what she needed to do. I wish I had booked her for partial or full planning! It was so nice to relax on my wedding day because I knew Johanna and her team had everything covered. If anything went wrong, I had no idea. We had a last-minute change and she worked with us on getting a new one and figuring out what needed to change. She made the last month of wedding planning such a breeze. She walked us through everything we needed to have set for the wedding timeline as well as went over everything for the wedding rehearsal day before. I'm so grateful for Johanna and her team making the day so smooth and seamless. Johanna is a wedding angel sent from above. She was put on this Earth to do weddings."

Lucy Carter


"Johanna was an absolute dream to work with! From our first phone call with her she had the best energy and it’s obvious she genuinely loves what she does. Her work is really so much more than day-of coordination and she helped guide us in the months prior to the wedding in terms of things we didn’t even know to ask about. She’s extremely organized and detail oriented - all with a big smile on her face! She had an impressive way of getting things done and directing the bridal party/family to stay on schedule without making anything feel stressful or rushed. Truly couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator and now I’m just sad the wedding is over, and we don’t get to work with her anymore!"

Sara T


"The dream wedding coordinator! After planning everything for the wedding day I was nervous about handing over all the details and Johanna/Team executed everything flawlessly. I never had to worry about anything that day because someone was always there to help with whatever it was, we needed. They also packed up all our decor beautifully, not one thing broke! I highly recommend them for your special wedding day!"

Selina Pierce 


"Our wedding day and vow renewal were both low stress thanks to Johanna! After having to really scale down our original wedding, Johanna stayed in contact with us for over a year to make sure both our small wedding in 2021 and our vow renewal in 2022 were everything we wanted. She was easy to contact and responded quickly, she kept everything very organized and made sure to know exactly what we wanted. On the day of our vow renewal she made sure everything ran smoothly and we were well taken care of. We could not be more thankful for Johanna and her team."

Karly Coleman 


"Johanna did amazing! My husband and me were engaged for two years and had a lot of planning to do. We didn’t expect COVID to happen when we first got engaged in the fall of 2019. Things got crazy when COVID hit and we were nervous of how it could affect our vendors and everything involved with the wedding. We came across Johanna from a recommendation and we definitely needed her involved! She kept us positive throughout the pandemic and kept us on track with meeting deadlines we needed to when it came to completing booking vendors to ensure we got what we wanted. She made the process as smooth as I can think it could be.

On our big day she did amazing and made it so stress free for me and my husband. It ran smoothly and it made for the day to be enjoyable. I don’t know what I would’ve done without her. She made the day running in the background getting everything together "

Morgan Warren


"Having Johanna as our coordinator was the best wedding planning decision we made, right up there with venue in terms of importance! She provided a very helpful list of recommended vendors and gave great advice in the months before the wedding. The week and day of the wedding, she was absolutely invaluable! She coordinated with all of our vendors and decorated the reception site while we were at the church getting ready for the ceremony. We absolutely could not have done it without her! We prepped some of the décor ourselves (DIY centerpieces, etc.), and when I handed it off to Johanna the day before the wedding, I felt a huge sense of relief. She enabled me to just relax and enjoy the big day without worrying about anything! I really cannot recommend her enough! She’s professional, thorough, experienced, fun to work with, and truly cares about making everything goes smoothly."

Sarah Byrd


"Johanna and her team did an amazing job for our wedding, we wouldn’t have got through the day without her!!! She brought up all the details we were missing during the planning process, gave recommendations for some vendors we had not yet solidified and really had great communication leading up to the day. The wedding itself ran so smooth and she and Jessica took care of everything! From setting up to breaking down, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better to work with. I would highly recommend Johanna and her team!!"

Heather Fairchild


"Johanna was absolutely invaluable in ensuring our wedding went off without a hitch. Her organization, attention to detail, and professionalism kept everything running smoothly for the entire event. She was there for us through each step of the planning process, including all the changes we had to make closer to the event due to Covid. She was incredibly supportive and there for anything we needed before and during our wedding. We couldn't recommend her enough!"

Veronica Diaz


"We had the best wedding day, all thanks to Johanna!!! During our first initial meeting with her, we immediately felt like we could trust her with our special day. Her professionalism and attention to detail was so helpful throughout the entire process. We had a very large bridal party, and I wasn't sure how our vendors were going to handle that many people to coordinate and work with, but Johanna knew how to take charge and guide everyone involved with clarity and organization over our wedding weekend. It was the most stress-free and meaningful day we could have asked for!"

Kristi Noel 


"Johanna and her team were absolutely amazing. She helped us every step of the way and went above and beyond all of our expectations. Every email I sent she responded to promptly. I had no idea how many details went into planning a wedding but I couldn’t have done it without her. I was so nervous the day of, because there were so many moving parts but the second they arrived I felt completely at ease. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect!"

Corey Smith


"If you are on the fence about a wedding planner/coordinator, Johanna is the best! It is an overwhelming task and Johanna and her staff took away all the stress! Very professional, organized, available and responsive! A huge help with planning and organizing and took care of everything the day of, from setting up and keeping us on track to making sure our elderly folks were comfortable and had help fixing a plate! When the night was over, everything was packed and ready at the door for loading. We were cleaned up and out of the venue 30 minutes after the wedding! I cannot say enough good things about Johanna and her team! It felt like we were her only clients and she was just as interested in every aspect of my daughter's wedding as we were! Johanna is definitely gifted and talented and we could not have done this without her! Definitely a key vendor when planning a wedding and very reasonable! Thank you for a perfect event!"

Holly Williams


"Johanna was beyond anything I could have ever asked for leading up to our wedding and the day of. She saved the day so many times! Literally 20 minutes before our ceremony someone was in the space taking pictures and she fixed any issue without me ever knowing until after!! She was professional, helpful, and overall just a key to making that day happen. I plan on hiring her all over again for vow renewals! Thank you so much Johanna!!!!! ❤"

Melissa Wrenn


"There are not enough amazing things to say about Johanna! She consistently went above and beyond to make sure my sister's wedding ceremony and reception was perfect. She was so helpful throughout the planning process, flexible, and made herself available for any questions or concerns. My sister did not have to worry once on their wedding day because she was on top of everything. She anticipates the unexpected, pays attention to every single detail and is incredible at managing vendors and the event staff. I would without a doubt recommend Johanna to anyone for any type of event."

Michelle Deaver


"As a type-A bride who balanced her years of convention/event planning experience with a strong desire to not present as a "bridezilla", I struggled to trust people with aspects of my wedding for fear of conflict over things not being done correctly in my eyes. Johanna was the exception to this role- I trusted her completely in all aspects of the wedding planning, and throughout the big day. Your wedding planner really should be an extension of yourself, and Johanna helped us understand the wedding process (because who knows how people should walk down the aisle?? You only do this one time!), and by answering all of the questions we didn't care about while prioritizing what we DID care about. I appreciate her calm demeanor, her confidence in her skill set, and her ability to balance my husband's ADHD hyper fixation with my stress. I have told everyone about our day - "it was just everything we asked for" and it was because of Johanna. THANK YOU!"
